Free Vaginal Ultrasounds?

Are there any centers that offer free ultrasounds? I do not know if I am pregnant, and I am going CRAZY! Also, I have no insurance.

  • hi there, where abouts do u live?i havnt paid for any of my ultrasounds there free in 2d only pay for private scans ....have u been to see ure doctor about maybe being pregnant?he will do a test and then if u are send u for a dating scan . hope this helps x x
  • Hiya!!

    I don't know of anywhere that would do a scan just like that, there normally booked through your midwife once she has booked you in and confirmed the pregnancy.

    At the risk of sounding really stupid......if you're not sure if you're pregnant or not why don't you just do a pregnancy test?!

  • Hi,

    from what your saying it sounds like you live in a country that you need insurance in order to get health care, as appose to a country that offers a free national health service like the UK. (correct me if i`m wrong!!)

    i dont know if there is anywhere you can go to get a free scan but over here we can pay for private scans which is around ??80-100. i dont know if you can afford this or not though, but if i was you and you think you are pregnant it is probably wise to get yourself some healthcare insurance as you are going to need it!!

    sorry i cant be anymore help!!

  • hi

    if Nina is right and u are living outside the uk, and u are p^regnant, then yes u will need health insurance, however, i currently live in belgium and here u can't get insurance til ur fully registered which i'm noy yet, so i don't have insurance either, but because i am pregnant they cannot refuse to treat u, what will happen is u will have to give them ur adress and contact, and then they will send u the bill, if u recieve the bill before urn insurance is set up then u have to pay but keep the receipt as u can claim it back once u have insurance, but u can only do this if u are pregnant

    HTH

    Sorry, I've should have been more specific. I live in the US, Virginia Beach, Virginia to be exact.

    And, I've taken five tests already! Urine, though. I just want to know what's going on in there.

  • home pregnancy tests are so reliable nowadays that doctors don'(t tend to do there own if u say u've had a positive test, the fact that u've had 5 positive tests is a 99.9% certainty u are pregnant, for 5 seperate tests to falsley pick up the pregnancy hormone is nigh on impossible. so CONGRATULATIONS ur pregnant

    have u had a look at any american sights? they maybe able to give u more info as to how u can go about medical care, but u will need to get insurance at some point, as i said before if they do it on the same principle as Belgium then they can start giving u medical care and u pay for it now, but once ur insurance is set up then u can claim it back, or make some other arrangement but u definately need to speak to someone who knows about the US medical system. but don't worry u will not be left high and dry for the simple reason that u r pregnant.

    hope this helps
